The college admissions scandal Felicity Huffman has been linked to looks like it has been draining the heck out of her. A bloodless looking Felicity Hoffman appearing like she has no blood running through her veins along with crying all night- walked into court saying she is guilty the college admissions scandal. Huffman reportedly paid a ring leader, Rick Singer $15,000 to give her daughter a leg up on her SAT test that allowed her double the time to write the test over others.
It didn’t stop there, Huffman’s payment was set for someone to also correct any incorrect answers her daughter had on her SAT test. Huffman was looking to pay her daughter’s way into a prestigious college by essentially bribing her way in. The college admissions scandal as it has been labelled involves dozens of parents looking to pay for their kids way into prestigious universities.
Huffman has been one of the highest profile woman in the scandal. In addition to thinking she can buy her daughter’s education to a prestigious school without her having to put in the intellectual work to being accepted- Huffman also faces other crimes. The actress reportedly was also booked for conspiracy to commit mail fraud.
Prosecutors also had linked Huffman to money a laundering, but- because she plead guilty- they are having mercy on her. Huffman faced 20 years in prison, but with her guilty plea she might just get 4 months in prison. The crazy Lori Loughlin is facing the ultimate in decades in prison after she decided to take her chances to fight in court instead of taking a plea deal. From Cosmopolitan:
“When Lori heard the number of years she could spend in prison, she broke down crying. The thought of being separated from her loved ones for years brought her to her knees. She has watched as the other families cut deals, but her husband feels they are not guilty and should plead not guilty….In the end, she trusts those who are advising her and somehow believes there is a chance she will go free.”
Sadly, our loved ones often give us bad advice based on their personal feelings and not logic to the situation. The college admissions scandal involved over two dozen parents. Many if not most are signing on for plea deals to avoid decades in prison .
